"What's a Bandersnatch?"
Cute little movie with great scenes teaching young kids about getting along, taking turns etc. We first open with two kids wailing on each other over who should ride the tricycle. (The little girl is obviously winning this fight). Three kids break it up and teach the two kids to compromise, that they need to share the tricycle. Remember that.. we then go to the playground, where a game of baseball is being played. One of the boys goes to bat, and a boy wants to use his glove! But wait! because it's his property, he doesnt have to give it up!! What about compromise? Oh well.
We then go to a classroom (check out those desks with the swivel chairs) where we settle a dispute about two similar looking notebooks, finding out what a 'bandersnatch' is (one kid screams, 'A WHAT?' - My thoughts exactly) and the kids have an election for a playground representative. Check out the results. How the heck could there be 27 kids in that classroom?? HIGHLY reccomended!
